Astronomy and Space Day- We will have solar observing outdoors with a H-alpha telescope, a Sunspotter for kids to trace sunspots, and our reflectors using glass solar filters, if the weather is clear. Many hands-on activities (including the spectroscope) for all ages, star shows in the planetarium every hour, a show we are testing called OUR VERY OWN STAR, and much more. It is all free and open to the public.

We will also have solar observing outdoors during March 29 for SUN-EARTH DAY for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to campus from 10 - 2, shows in the planetarium on the sun and eclipses.

San Juan and Maunabo

University of Puerto Rico Astronomy March 29th

We have sonified the eclipse for the participants to use more than one sense to enjoy the eclipse. It will be fully accessible for the visually impaired. We will start very early in the morning for the participants to use the telescopes prior to the eclipse. We also will participate on the webcast.

The sixth grade students from the Higinio Figueroa Villegas school in Maunabo will be monitoring solar activity using the radio JOVE despite the fact that the sun activity has been low these days. The kids want to participate on the webcast but the school is not prepared with antennas to get the signal.
